Christianity borrowed its central myths and ceremonies from other ancient religions. The ancient world was rife with tales of virgin births, miracle-working saviors, tripartite gods, gods taking human form, gods arising from the dead, heavens and hells, and days of judgment. In addition to the myths, many of the ceremonies of ancient religions also match those of that syncretic latecomer, Christianity. To cite but one example (there are many others), consider Mithraism, a Persian religion predating Christianity by centuries. Mithra, the savior of the Mithraic religion and a god who took human form, was born of a virgin; he belonged to the holy trinity and was a link between heaven and Earth; and he ascended into heaven after his death. His followers believed in heaven and hell, looked forward to a day of judgment, and referred to Mithra as "the Light of the World." They also practiced baptism (for purification purposes) and ritual cannibalism—the eating of bread and the drinking of wine to symbolize the eating and drinking of the god’s body and blood. Given all this, Mithra’s birthday should come as no surprise: December 25th; this event was, of course, celebrated by Mithra’s followers at midnight.

You only expose your prejudice against Islam.
Muslim women can divorce freely in many countries without any problem.
Why do you have to highlight the excesses that happen sometimes, rather than the majority of times where everything run smoothly.
Are you going to tell us that the Catholic Church is without problem? The Catholic church doesn't allow divorce! The Catholic church doesn't allow birth control! The Catholic church has harboured paedophile priests for decades. The Catholic church in Ireland used to send young girls who got into trouble to England to have abortion.
You are still pretending Catholicism is perfect?
I was raised as a catholic, and I know very well what's going on in that religion!
Don't tell me there isn't brainwashing in the Catholic church, please!!
So you run down the faith you were born into as not perfect, yet you go on about Islam being perfect?

You're such a perfect, faultless person yourself, aren't you

You have never heard about domestic violence among white Brits perhaps?
You would deny white Brits killing their wife, or burning their house with all the kids inside, would you?
Highlighting the crimes committed by some Muslims, and generalising about them, as if all Muslims were criminals is yout method.
You are a depraved sick man...
And each time a white person commits such a crime they cry out, "Jesus is great"

Well, there is no one month that pass without hearing another sex scandal, or more recently the treatment of young vulnerable girls in the end of catholic nuns. Literaly slavery in their laundries.
Even the Irish government had to apologise for that.
Catholic priests have left a trail of abused victims, bearing the mental scars for the rest of their life.
Just recently, the head of the catholic church in Scotland, a cardinal, has been made to resign.
In the States, the catholic church has been paying hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation to abused kids.
You deny all that, I am sure.
And all the time the Imams and other religious Muslims do this without a murmur from other Muslims.

Speaks volumes doesn't it.

Rio, you are truly a champion for Islam, keep it up along with your hatred for all that is British.

LOL, please do not be so naive and arrogant. You pal, or no-one else on this forum or outside of this forum, has the power to upset or annoy me.
It is only I, that can allow for this to happen, of which I simply refuse to do, thus you and your cronies will always fail, in your attempt to annoy me, which I must also say are very lamely attemptd pal.

In answer to your question, on another post, why did an unfortunate very close relative fall for the cult "Sciencetology?"

Is the answer to this question not blatantly obvious to you?
It is obviously a family trait, as you yourself are seriously brainwashed by right wing b-llshit, so much so that you are often afraid to look outside of the box or supposed "norm"
There is obviously a serious Flaw in the family DNA, my auld pal!!!

I am sure scientists, and the mental health elite, would love to delve into your fascinating family DNA, and why youse are so susceptable, and naive, and dare I say it? Okay I will, old fashioned mindbogglingly stupid.

LOL..

No, I expose lies and prejudices, and you don't like it.
If you want to dish it out, sunshine, you have to be ready to take it too!
One question that all Islamophobes, you included, refuse to answer.
Since you say you can't live alongside them, what do you intend to do with millions of Muslims presently living in Britain?

Apply the full weight of the law to them.

If every Pakistani involved or in collusion with the child rape gangs was taken into custody, there'd be hardly any left.

Pathetic lie! Like is every Muslim was a rapist.

But what are you going to do with the millions of peaceful Muslims at every echelon of society, since you refuse to live alongside them.

Beside, many have British nationality.
They won't go away, and you know it!
You are condemned to live with them and hate them for the rest of your life.

Millions of peaceful muslims? You're having a giraffe.

The Pakistani population of Britain is a criminal community. They're all involved in a large range of organised crimes against this society.

Allowing muslims to settle in western countries will go down as the biggest mistake in human history.

Arrogant too eh Equality? The only brainwashing here are those such as you that are suckered into believing that Islam is indeed a peaceful, tolerant religion.

As for the Scientology question, thankfully he's my wife's brother and has always been a weak willed leftie, Muslim loving idiot, just like you and Rio really. However, the difference here is that he is family so we were duty bound to save the little runt.

On another note, don't take the power of Scientology and the likes lightly.

You have just shown your arrogance and disloyality and false superiority, by slagging off a family member on an internet forum pal.

Your supposedly brother and law, is a "weak willed, leftie" why is this? because he has a social conscience, and has shown humanity by not racially abusing his fellow man and woman.

You can give me a so-called weak willed leftie, any day of the week pal, rather him than a arrogant, disloyal, two-faced, person who has a huge false sense of superiority attached.

One more point "false sense of superiority" every human being has there weaknesses, even the most disciplined human being, will succumb to a particular weakness, and failing during there life-time.

So please shove your false sense of right wing being, were the sun does not shine pal!!!..

Finally, just a wee message for your brother and law,
"keep the red flag, flying"...... BUDDY,FAIR PLAY!!! LOL.

well actually you could not marry one,as Islam considers a marriage between a Muslim woman and kuffar man as void,and that's straight from Mohamed himself.
